§ 7. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a Kurdish leader has recently made representations to the Allied High Commissioner in Constantinople, or to the Turkish Government, with regard to the establishment of a separate autonomous Kurdish State: whether the Government can make any statement regarding the possibility of a Kurdish national movement and their policy towards it should it reach the stage of practical politics; and whether the Kurdish leader in Constantinople represents any considerable number of Kurdish tribes?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
In view of the fact that the future of Kurdistan is at the present moment under discussion by the Peace Conference in London, I regret that I am unable to make any statement on the subject.
